English + Singing =Singlish

Study_English_Ireland

Do you sometimes find that people don’t understand you even though you know your grammar is correct? Do people ask you to repeat things you’ve just said because they can’t understand your accent? Do people sometimes think you’re angry when you’re hungry? Does this make you feel blue (sad)? Learning English in Ireland is easy when you sing!

Well, we understand. We’ve felt the same thing in other countries. Pronunciation is sometimes the key to being understood. But pronunciation is also difficult to practice. If only there were a song which could teach you all the sounds of English in under 3 minutes. Well, today’s your lucky day!

Sing your pronunciation blues away with Singlish. We’ve put all the sounds of English into one song. Read the words and sing along to our original song and soon your pronunciation of English blues will melt away like an ice cream in the Irish sun.

Sing along with Simon and Therese (teachers of English) and fill in the missing words to chase away those pronunciation blues. Simon and Therese are two native English speaking teachers of English in Ireland who developed the Singlish english pronunciation video.

More to come. Learn about one students journey to excellent English.
